About Liz Sekul

I am a local business owner with a love for the outdoors, and social gatherings. I love nothing more than cold drink on a front porch!

Liz Sekul purchased this bungalow in 2007

Why Liz Sekul chose Gulfport

I purchased this lovely home from my grandmother. When she told me she was going to sell it, I knew I had to have this charming bungalow. It has always been a very happy home, and I am happy to share that with visitors from all around.

What makes this bungalow unique

This house is conveniently centrally located. It is walking distance from casinos, the beach and a fun splash pad play ground for the kids. There is also a homemade candy store within walking distance for the kids to visit. The downtown restaurants that offer local seafood, steaks, pizza, and Cajun cuisine are a two minute drive. Come stay at Casa Verde, hit the town for some amazing food, then take a stroll down to the beach to catch the sunset!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful home! We truly enjoyed our stay, and so did our dogs. The front porch was a favorite place to relax with our morning coffee. Thank you for providing such beautiful accommodations!

Lovely Cottage with Wonderful Owners

  • 5 of 5

My dogs and I so enjoyed our stay at Casa Verde that I extended our trip by an extra week.

The home is just as adorable as you see in the pictures. It is super clean and spacious, with lots of room to spread out. The kitchen is also stocked with everything one needs to prepare a meal but with so many awesome restaurants in the area, you'll eat out most of the time. The location is super convenient, just a mere 4 blocks from the beach. We walked to the beach nearly every day we were there. You are also only a short 20 minute drive to Biloxi where you can find lots to do (e.g., shrimping tour; Biloxi Tour Train; bars; etc.). For dog lovers, the shrimping tour, white trout fishing trip, Biloxi Tour Train, and Eco-Tours of Mississippi are dog-friendly but you should call ahead and speak with the owners first so they can make arrangements for you and your 4-legged family members.

One of the best things about Casa Verde are the owners, Liz and Chase. Super accommodating, extremely responsive, knowledgeable on the area and things to do, and just generally cool.

You will LOVE staying at Casa Verde!!!

In spite of location, not ideal.

  • 1 of 5

The house looked much better on the pictures than in reality. Both the house and yard are in need of serious TLC. The hardwood floors in the house are badly in need of re-finishing. The lighting is insufficient and the ceiling lights are filthy. The worst situation though, not stressed enough, is the noise factor. A major RR goes right behind the house, maybe fifty feet. There is a RR crossing some 100 ft. away and all trains must whistle for the crossing. Usually, there is a train going by every hour or less all day and night. To compound this noise there is a stop sign on 11th one house to the west. Cars and trucks use this heavily and in so doing, create a very noisy atmosphere 24 hrs. a day. We did not get a decent nights sleep in this house for the entire month we stayed there.

Owner's Response: In all honesty reading this review hurt my heart. Owning and caring for this home is not just an income source, but a labor of love. I pride myself in making Casa Verde one of the most welcoming, clean, and easy places to rent on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. To address some of your issues; I appreciate the suggestion to have the floors refinished. I had them done about 6 years ago, but I guess inviting guests to bring their pets with them while on vacation has taken it's toll. I'll take care of that in the coming months. Regarding the lighting, There are not only ceiling lights, but lamps in every room just to be sure that the lighting is sufficient. There are also multiple windows in every room, so I'm not sure what else we could do to improve on this situation. In regards to the yard needing TLC; I have a yard service that comes by once per week, but due to your concerns about noise, I had them hold off until your departure. Gulfport is a port city one of its most charming qualities is that it is near the beach. Having the sound of the train is a way of life here in Gulfport, train traffic is something we must deal with, especially if we want to be near the beach. Not sure how to address the fact that the home is on a street that cars and trucks drive on except maybe that Casa Verde Vacation Rental is in a convenient, relatively bustling area of town with lots to do. I'm sorry you consider that a negative. This is the first time I have had to respond to a one star review in six years of owning a vacation rental. I will use it as inspiration to improve the rental experience for my future guests. Thank you for the motivation.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable beds, nice and spacious. Loved the location - close to the coast, casinos, and dining. We really used the home as a spot to simply hang out. We spent a lot of time there and it was comfortable. We had trouble connecting to the Wi-Fi and using the roku. And the train was honestly terrifying at night. But we live in a very secluded quiet area, so any noise is disruptive to me. Everyone loved the shower.

Perfect Gulf Coast getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful stay here! The house is even cuter in person- very stylish and comfortable with everything we needed for a fun weekend. We loved the front porch and kitchen- we had coffee on the porch in the mornings and made dinner at the house the second night. Great location- easy walk to the beach and close to downtown restaurants and bars. Liz was very helpful and easygoing- we look forward to staying here again! Thanks!
